POWERING OUR TOMORROW

Dear Friends,

What’s amazing about the YMCA is that, even after nearly 175 years in America and more than 70 years in Austin, we have new opportunities to explore and new trails to blaze. Never before in our Y’s history have we faced the kinds of transformative projects that lie ahead over the next few years.

But before we look to the future, let’s celebrate the many positive changes we’ve powered across Greater Austin over the past year. We started the year by notching our 15th anniversary in Dripping Springs, where our Y has woven itself into the fabric of this fast-growing community.

We launched our new brand with a new, more inclusive name of our regional reach – Greater Austin YMCA – and a promise to help people power their purpose at the Y and through the Y. By empowering and educating youth, boldly expanding access and opportunity for all and energizing a sustainable future, we will elevate quality of life throughout Central Texas.

We reinvested more than ever before in our local communities, employing more than 1,600 neighbors, many of whom are young people in their first jobs. We also invested $6.8 million in improvements to Y centers and expansion to serve more people. We began designing a new Y in the Four Points area of West Austin, which will create a blueprint for the next-gen Y by piloting new programs like our YMCA Tomorrow AcademyTM early childhood education center.

We gathered community input to shape the vision for a new community wellness district at the TownLake Y, and we announced our intentions to the public to explore redevelopment at all our Y centers.

We expanded the scope of our YMCA Texas Youth and Government program to reach more rural and low-income youth, and reaffirmed longstanding support from the Sumners Foundation, which has provided nearly $5 million in funding over the past three decades.

Our Mission Our mission serves all ages, cultures, races and ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, and faiths. We recognize our heritage, the power of love, and a culture of belonging within our mission: To put Christian principles (such as caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility) into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body FOR ALL
Greater Austin YMCA Metro Board Chair Brian Haulotte and President & CEO Kathy Kuras

We began a multi-year effort to redesign the business model for the entire child care sector statewide, convening conversations with legislators, regulators, business leaders and community partners like school districts and Austin Community College. As the largest provider of child care locally, in Texas and nationally, the Y has an obligation to lead development of a sustainable model that can meet family needs while fueling economic growth across the state.

We welcomed special guests from the Lviv, Ukraine YMCA for Voices of Ukraine, an evening of music, culture and conversation. It can be easy to forget that the Y is a global movement. This event was not only a reminder of the spiritual benefits of arts and culture in the face of existential threats. It was also a testament to the power of people coming together across boundaries to lift each other up in times of need.

We celebrated our 10th anniversary at the North Austin Y with the launch of our Everline Counseling mental health support program and a grant for a Best Buy Teen Tech Center that will open doors of creativity and career opportunity, supporting workforce development, for kids in the neighborhood.

Explorer Point: Groves & Caves opened its doors at the Northwest Family YMCA, creating a new standard for all Austin Ys with a reimagined Kids’ Play area that creates a museum-quality educational play experience along with coplay opportunities for kids and parents to explore and learn together..

We continued progress in fulfilling our vision for YMCA Camp Moody, notching more than 3,500 kids and families in summer camp and family campouts since opening in 2020. We unveiled plans for the next phase of camp development, which will include a large, multipurpose activity center that will support more campers, conferences and retreats. The Hays CISD Aquatics Center at camp surpassed the 1,000-child mark in Project SAFE swim lessons. In partnership with ISDs serving Austin, Buda, Del Valle, Dripping Springs, Kyle, Manor, and Round Rock, since 2009, Project SAFE has taught more than 20,000 kids across our area how to swim and be safe in the water for free.

We are so incredibly fortunate to live in a vibrant community region like Greater Austin. We’re equally fortunate to be a part of an organization like the Y with a rich history of innovation. Whatever you can imagine a Y doing in a community, we can accomplish it together.

As a volunteer-led, nonprofit community enterprise, we rely on YOU to think like community entrepreneurs With fresh, innovative ideas that lift up all people by powering your purpose at the Y, we will build healthy people, healthy places and a healthy planet. Let’s be bold, creative, and collaborative.

Thank You
